Days of Gratitude

Our Gratitude Collections feature curated educational resources designed to help educators and parents guide their students and families in growing gratitude and resilience, spreading joy, and recognizing what truly matters in life. In these themed collections, you will find a unique and diverse set of activities that will engage your head, heart, hands, and spirit. Most activities can be completed in 20 minutes or less, and can be done on your own, or together with your family, friends, communities, and organizations.
